Sunday Streets – Excelsior
September 28, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm| Free
Sunday Streets are events that encourage recreation, community activities and fun in San Francisco. Sunday Streets closes stretches of city streets to automobile traffic, and opens them to people for several hours on a various Sundays throughout the year, so participants can enjoy a large, temporary, public space where they can bike, walk, run, dance, do yoga, or do any other physical activity. Non-profit and health organizations offer free activities and share information about their services during the event.
About Sunday Streets in the Excelsior
This will be the third year Sunday Streets has visited the Excelsior.

The Sunday Streets route includes Mission St between Theresa/Avalon and Geneva Ave.
